THE LOCAL government team in Dénia have decided to clear the promenades of terraces and certain structures to allow more space for pedestrians.
This decision will particularly affect three areas that contain around 20 bars and restaurants – Raset, Bellavista, Les Drassanes and Cervantes – that will be required to remove temporary extensions built over recent years that currently completely block off sections of the pavement. Restaurants along the Raset would be asked to remove their large terrace extensions before March 1, 2018.
The proposal by the governing team of the PSPV and Compromis will be discussed at this week’s plenary meeting with the aim of a modification to local regulations being brought in and enforced.
The new regulations will define precisely how the future terraces must look after the March 1 deadline. Along the Cervantes promenade, only umbrellas will be permitted and along the rest of the seafront only white pergolas will be allowed to be installed and only three metres in front of the premises.
